The third annual Town of the Year competition kicks off Monday on 92.9 The Ticket and at 929TheTicket.com with a play-in round featuring eight towns from "The County."

This year's competition has expanded to a Ticket-wide event, spanning The Morning Line and The Drive, as well as the station's social media platforms.

The action gets underway Monday when The County takes center stage. Eight towns from Aroostook County will vie MON-THU for the right to make it into the field of 64.

Mars Hill vs. Caribou do battle on Monday, followed by Fort Kent vs. Fort Fairfield on Tuesday, Presque Isle vs. Van Buren on Wednesday and Thursday.

Voting for each match-up will run from 8 a.m. (designated day of match-up) to 8 a.m. the following day.
